Naples – Key West – Miami, at 8909 kilometers

by bretzelitos

We left Naples via US-41. At 0930, when we left, it was already 32 degrees Centigrade. We got in a good shower system which steamed up the atmosphere even more. We really felt like being in the tropics.

While driving through the land of the Miccosukee American Natives, we stopped at an Everglades airboat offer. This was quite an experience.

After having a very good Sushi meal near Homestead at “Sushi Sake”, we continued on Florida Highway One down to Key West.

We had time for a short photo stop at the southernmost point of continental US – the end point of our big diagonal crossing – from where we saw big thunderstorm clouds over Cuba, only 90 miles away.

We started our return to Europe by driving to Miami back on Highway-1 and the Florida turnpike. Our last night stop, before the flight home the next day, has been the Embassy Suites Hotel at Miami International Airport.
